Graphical Programming

I would like to share some options in the world of G-programming with you.


Here is my list (feel free to add some...)

  • National Instruments LabVIEW (http://www.ni.com/labview)
  • Scratch from MIT (http://scratch.mit.edu/)
  • Agilent VEE Pro 8.0 (http://www.home.agilent.com/agilent/product.jspx?nid=-536900532.425703.00&cc=US&lc=eng)
  • Agentsheets (http://www.agentsheets.com/)
  • Microsoft Robotics Studio (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-gb/robotics/default.aspx)
  • Stagecast (http://www.stagecast.com/)
  • Matlab Simulink (http://www.mathworks.com/products/simulink/)
  • Microchip Flowcode (http://microcontrollershop.com/product_info.php?cPath=148&products_id=527)

Some of them are targetting for children other are more for bachelor / master students and other are real professional tools to use in measurement and automation industry.
